   [Information from Virus Help Denmark]
   For about 2 years ago John Veldthuis sold the source code for
   VirusChecker to David Dustin. But David never had the time to update
   VirusChecker. So David did a great thing, he offered the source code
   to Virus Help Denmark for free, and they accepted the offer and went out
   looking for a programmer that could update the new VirusChecker. They
   found a guy in Holland, that is a member of the new team behind Virus
   Help Team Netherlands. The guy is Alex van Niel, and has done a great
   job with updating VirusChecker.
                                      
   [Note from Virus Help Team Canada]
   VirusChecker-II can now unpack ZIP archives to virustest the files
   inside. Just go to the VirusChecker II Links below, to find the
   directions, using the XAD package from Dirk Stöcker.

   Virus Help Team Denmark has thanked Alex for the great job he has
   done, and VHT-Canada would also like to give our personal thanks too.
                                      
   We would also like to give our personal thanks, as did Virus Help
   Denmark, to David Dustin, for giving the code to VHT-DK, and to
   John Veldthuis as the original programmer of VirusChecker.

        Copyright Georg Hörmann, Alex van Niel and Jan Erik Olausen

   [Information from Virus Help Denmark]
   The entire XVS software package is written and copyright 1997-99 by
   Georg Hvrmann. During December 1999 to June 2001, Alex van Niel took
   over programming. Additional changes and updates during June 2001 and
   onwards are copyright 2001 Georg Hörmann and Jan Erik Olausen.

   This Library contains all the virus recognition and removal code that
   was formerly included in VirusZ. This step has been taken for one
   major reason: VirusZ can be updated fast without releasing the whole
   package every week by simply releasing a new library version.
                                      
   So simply install the library in this archive to your LIBS: drawer
   to get 100% protection against the latest viruses.
                                      
   Right now there are a few anti-virus that uses the xvs.library to
   find and remove the nasty viruses. Here are the names:
   VirusZ II & III - VirusChecker II - VirusExecutor - VirusSlayer II
   CheckX - Safe.

   [Note from Virus Help Team Canada]
   Andrew Bell uses Xvs.library in Voodoo-X, which is the GUI for the
   XAD package from Dirk Stoecker.
